He also really liked Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'El Topo,' as one might expect given it hails from the 'Acid Western' genre.
A sequel to El Topo is said to be coming out in 2012.

It would be a shame if someone who might be pleased by this excellent movie was discouraged from doing so by the unenthusiastic nature of the commentary. The great surrealist Luis Bunuel is quoted in his biography saying that The Saragossa Manuscript is the movie he himself had watched the most (three times). If you're open to unusual art, you might be gratified to watch it. I found it an immense amount of fun. Those people back there in 1965 might have been on to something.

I saw a short interview with the financier/producer last night. I do wonder why it's never been filmed before. I don't think it's Rands stringent form of libertarianism, but maybe those 1200 pages!
